    Not something you see ever day! Super cool.

    Do you have any of the other variations? I've heard there are 3, but I've never seen any of them in detail.

    Ryan, You are correct there is three variations... I only have the second but a collector friend of mime and just a bayonet collector has all three.. A type three showed up at a local show around here (NC) about 7 years ago but he did not want to sell it because his father a veteran brought it home as a souviner...BILL

    Anyone have a picture - period or recent - of one attached to a rifle? I've never seen one attached.

    Default S42 bAYONET vARIATIONS

    I too have this same bayonet. I would like to see comparisons of all three models if anyone has all three to show off. I have looked at one that has sheet metal grips and scabbard. I also understand that there are variations of the tools. Would sure like to see all of the differences.

    hey guys... new to the forum here.

    this thread brought me here... recently came across a knife, and it took me a couple weeks just to find anything close to it on the net. I think it is one of these SG42 toolkit bayonets, however I have yet to find one with markings and setup exactly like this one.

    The general look is exactly like an SG42 toolkit bayonet that you see in pictures when googled... but a couple things are different.

    First, the tool in the handle, im not sure it has the ilk or whatever the three letters are on the can opener part (but I havent attempted to clean it). However, on the black release handle for the tool, it does have a small number '14' on it.

    Second, the rivets in the handle seem to be closer together than most pictures I have seen, so the top rivet closest to the blade is a little further down the handle and not as close to the blade as seen in the pictures above.

    Third are the blade markings. All of these that I have seen have the 'cof WaA519' wing stamp all on the same side of the blade. mine has cof stamped on one side, and then just '519' stamped on the other side with the little symbol. There is no 'WaA' preceding the numbers 519 as seen in most examples. Also the base of the blade seems to be a darker 'black' like color.

    Fourth, the little latch that clips into the black handle for the tool is more centered into the black handle, whereas a lot of pictures I have seen is seems to be off-centered to the right.

    Wondering if anyone can shed any light on this... normally I would just assume this was a repo or fake, but I feel as this should be genuine b/c I got it from my gpas basement, who was a WWII veteran, and he wasnt a collector of anything and he didnt buy much in terms of that type of stuff. He didn't go to stores that would sell stuff like this and he didn't even know what the internet was. In fact, this knife was just hanging out with the rest of his tools, right next to the sockets and screwdrivers.

    I am just trying to pinpoint exactly what it is and where it came from and all of that. I am not even concerned with value, because similar to what was mentioned above, this was a souvenir that he brought home from war.

    I will add pictures later today. Thanks.

    Okay... after searching multiple forums and even foreign sites... I FINALLY found a picture that looks exactly like the one I have. I will still upload actual pictures of mine tonight. One again, any info or help is much appreciated!

    Here is the site I found it on:
